Oh, the indignity of it all.
This is based on a real experience. Here is the least-happy time I ever spent at a clinic in Japan.
About this creation
My wife works as a receptionist in a doctor's office. She suggested this piece, and even the nature of the patient's visit. Ain't she great?!

Closer view. Old Clyde looks on in dead indifference (but he does seem to have a mischievous grin). But our hero is not a happy camper.

This is why.

Can we get your height and weight please?

I am particularly proud of my computer mouse. Doctors also need post-it notes and pencils.

Nurse's eye view.

Nurse! Have you been stealing pain killers again?

View without minifigures, except Old Clyde, of course.

Bird's eye view.

How on earth is it that neither Kelso nor Phipson has commented on this? It is right up their back alleys, after all. *rim-shot* Funny build with some great details.~H

Nicely done! Thank goodness the Healthcare Professional Figs know which of the four holes is the right one...and thanks for the comment on our "Enterprise" MOC...made us realize we could help our fellow "LegoTrekkies" by adding links between our other Star Trek creations (4 in all). Stop by sometime and see OUR Spock Minifig!

Quoting ImLost =( Nice work Gerry. I love the way you made the computer mouse too! I've never had a colonoscopy but I once had a bronchoscopy... yeah, I was pretty freaked out! I'm curious, are you planning to incoporate this MOC into an actual LEGO building or leave it as a stand-alone diarama? Anyways, good work!
Thanks a lot. I've gotten into a stage where I am building almost everything on 16x16 base plates. In Japan, (almost) everything is compartmentalized into standard sizes, and then those compartments form the basic unit of building. In a way, Japan is the ultimate Lego set. Since I am trying to capture the essence of my daily life here, modular pieces work best. There is also a long-standing Japanese artistic tradition of modular units which can stand alone. If you visit a good castle with lots of painted panels, such as Nijo Castle in Kyoto, the panels assembled make a great picture, but each individual panel is composed with it's own inner harmony. It mirrors the Japanese concept of "wa", balance within leads to balance without. So, in a long-winded answer to your question, the clinic is meant to work either as a stand alone diorama, or as part of a larger work. Thanks for your interest.

To Master: I was just getting a recommended examination. It is recommended annually for everyone once they turn 30. Call it a plumbing check, looking for clogs.
